Flag History
Adopted in 1625, Denmark is the oldest monarchy in Europe and also has the oldest flag, known as the Dannebrog or Danish cloth. Legend says that a blood-red flag with a white cross appeared as a sign from heaven to King Valdemar 11 during the conquest of Estonia in 1219. The off-centered cross is the basis for all other Scandinavian flags.

Denmark National Anthem

There is a Lovely Country (Der er et yndigt land)

Listen

Lyrics

There is a lovely country
it stands with broad beeches
near the salty eastern beach
It winds itself in hill, valley,
it is called old Denmark
and it is Freja's hall

There sat in former times,
the armour-suited warriors,
rested from conflict
Then they journeyed forwards to their enemies' injury,
now their bones are resting
behind the mound's menhir

That country is still lovely,
because the sea waves so blue frolic,
and the foliage stands so green
And noble women, beautiful maidens,
and men and brisk swains
inhabit the Danes' islands

Hail king and native country!
Hail every a Dane-citizen,
who works, what he can
Our old Denmark shall endure,
as long as the beech reflects
its top in the blue wave
